Need Help for Tomorrows Rock Show
« on: March 24, 2006, 02:21:06 AM »
Ok I taped my first show tonight.

Not so good.

The vocals and the crowd came out stellar. But the heavy bass distorted my recording at the loudest parts. It was a small club with alot of speakers.

For one, I droped on of my mic screens in the toilet while setting up, so I recorded with no screens on. Would that make a difference? Also I could not check levels during the show due to security, I set them all the way to the right. (I am a noob at audio taping, I know) If tomorrow night I turn the levels to halfway and use screens will the recording sound good?

Thanks for the help
Peace

BTW i was using SP-CMC-8 cardioid mics pluged into a battery box, pointed at the speakers and had selected M on the Microtrack.

Screens won't make a differnence, just make sure your levels are more reasonable before you start. Good luck.

I don't have a bass rolloff because soundprofessionals told me not to buy one, and honestly im not sure how to set the levels. In your opinion would halfway up the chart be ok?

Thanks

That actually sounds pretty good (sans distortion of course)

go with the 1/2 way point on the levels and if it's too low you can add some volume in post.

apparently you did not read Mr. French's post how this site is dedicated to archiving and sharing music for FREE

people like you are the ones that give all of us taper's bad names and create many many problems for us and the musicians we support. please do yourself and the rest of us a favor and leave our community alone. we are tapers because we love music, you obviously are in it for the money. shame on you for selling other people's music, people like you disgust me
